    The Cowboys and Redskins face off at noon Sunday in Washington D.C.

    On a day that’s seen DeMarco Murray set the franchise record for rushing yards in a season and Dez Bryant set the franchise record for receiving touchdowns in a season on consecutive plays, the Dallas Cowboys lead the Washington Redskins 27-10 at half.

    Dan Bailey opened up the scoring on the Cowboys’ first drive with a 36-yard field goal to make it 3-0. Dallas would briefly lose their lead after Robert Griffin III hit DeSean Jackson for a 69-yard touchdown pass, but they responded in a big way.

    Dez Bryant caught touchdown passes of 65 and 23 yards from Tony Romo to close out the first quarter with the Cowboys ahead, 17-7. In the second quarter, Bailey hit a field goal of 32 yards and DeMarco Murray took in a nine-yard touchdown run to extend the Dallas lead to 27-7.

    Redskins kicker Kai Forbath made a 25-yard field goal to close the gap to 27-10 before intermission.
